Certified Crop Adviser (CCA)

The CCA program offers voluntary, professional certifications to crop advisers – proving their commitment to clients, employers, and the public. Farmers can depend on that dedication and determination for true results in the field.

All successful certification programs have one common element – they serve and protect the public interest. Many professions require a license to practice, such as in medicine, engineering, and accounting. A license is basically a certification program offered by the state. The CCA certification program offered by the American Society of America (ASA) is voluntary, but offers similar benefits as licensing programs. The CCA program sets higher standards for knowledge, skill, and conduct within the agronomic industry– a higher standard you can depend on.

Work with the Best

Certified Crop Advisers earn their certification by passing rigorous state and international exams. They must also sign and adhere to a code of ethics that places the customer’s needs first. CCAs meet and often exceed the high standards set by the American Society of Agronomy.

Cutting Edge Advice

CCAs have up-to-date knowledge on the latest developments in agriculture. Certification standards require CCAs to earn continuing education units (CEUs) every two years.

Bottom Line

Trained CCA professionals build a strong foundation for grower success.
